That life can be harsh & mistake ridden we mostly know. What we don't know are the solutions to some new
formulations of our old problems.
But we can return again with new questions within philosophy to try to fix the "knowledge Environment".
I have expressed before that we in the west could be a better example to the rest by realising that mass
POPULATIONS of mass societies bring their objective problems, e.g. no job then low quality of life & even
hunger, homelessness. Likely that TOO MANY people is a problem for mass "economic engines" so named.
Also that The MINIMUM working week is still accepted as 5 days - why not 4 days or even 3 days?
TAX breaks for SMALL families ?
As already said we need to set a good example to the poorer peoples, the poorer societies. Why?
Because we can?
And because this may be the evidence that THEY too can do something to END their crippling poverty,
& their OWN degradation.
As already stated here...societies & THEIR accompanying Environmental degrading of this planet must
be addressed, AND CAN be reversed^. And we MUST NOT leave our mistakes behind us as a history
OF US, a history of us humans. That is we CAN learn from our mistakes, in philosophy, in science and
in the way we live now..
In doing so we CAN turn All our big mistakes into those precious "stepping stones" that presently stretch
out before - right before our very eyes so to speak.
And if we don't look for them & talk about them we will hardly be able to USE THEM TO OUR ADVANTAGE,
will we ?
^ We "PHILOSOPHY people" must try to explain the serious problem. We (philosophy
people) have a duty to LOOK at the environment problem to see if iT IS WORTH IT...if some serious
future could be better effected by learning from this one mistake.
The question is - by throwing away our future environment are we also throwing away our western culture &
& everything good in it ?
